Question: Is it possible to make fabrication drawings of field studs added through the User Defined attributes of a part?


Answer: Studs added through UDAs cannot be viewed as parts in drawings. These virtual studs are only meant to be used within templates or marks (or templates in marks). If you need studs to show up in drawings as part, they need to be modeled using either beam or bolt options/ properties.
